EPIKURE™ Curing Agent P-201 P-202

Description

EPIKURE Curing Agents P-201 and P-202 are phenolic hydroxyl terminated solid flaked curatives for functional and decorative epoxy powder coatings. EPIKURE Curing Agent P-202 contains 2-methylimidazole that functions as an accelerator to reduce the cure cycle. EPIKURE Curing Agent P-201 contains no accelerator.

Benefits

  • Both EPIKURE Curing Agents P-201 and P-202 are extremely clean. This is achieved by incorporating special process techniques that include filtration of the product.
  • The two curatives are packaged to minimize moisture pick-up.
